The Plea Bargain (Brady v. United States, 397 U.S. 742 (1970))

The Plea Bargain,[1]With 5% of the world's population, our country now houses nearly 25% of the world's reported prisoners. We currently incarcerate 756 inmates per 100,000 residents, a rate nearly five times the average worldwide of 158 for every 100,000.[2]  I refuse to believe our Judicial Process is FIVE times better than the rest of the developed world.  If my experience is at all representative I would assert that our Judicial Process is five times worse. 
With the ubiquitous use of the plea bargain, innocent victims are offered little hope to clear their names against a stacked deck before the evidence is even revealed, “Either you plea out before trial or we go for the MAXIMUM!”  Or take your chance against ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY of the “malicious or corrupt” judges,[3] the “malicious or dishonest” prosecutor, [4] the “knowingly false testimony by police officers"[5] and “all (malicious, corrupt, dishonest and incompetent[6]) persons -- governmental or otherwise -- who were integral parts of the judicial process [7] acting under color of law to wit, ABSOLUTE CORRUPTION.[8]
Our Royalist Judicial Process has been allowed to run amuck unchecked for TOOO long.  We have no IDEA.  It scares me to think how many INNOCENT people may currently be incarcerated that have been denied their constitutional rights.  Rights that would have cleared their name, denied by immune CRIMINAL[9] attorneys persecuting innocent victims, not prosecuting, in our justice system, or wearing badges or the black robes of the royalist judiciary.[10] 
Six million people are under correctional supervision in the U.S.—more than were in Stalin’s gulags.”[11]  “With 5% of the world's population, our country now houses nearly 25% of the world's reported prisoners.”[12]  I refuse to believe we are 5 times as criminal as any other country.  It scares me to think how many men have been emotionally, financially and physically torn from their own flash and blood in the Jane Crow era.   I REFUSE to believe that our criminal Justice system is 5 times better!!!!  I am FORCED by the PRECEDENT of personal experience to think that 4 out of 5 of the current persons incarcerated in American prisons today as unproductive wards of the state might be completely innocent because they have likely had their Constitutional Rights CRIMINALLY denied under color of law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

S. 57 (1967) Judicial ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY is based on a skewed reading, overlooking the noted exception that absolute ANYTHING creates, of Lord Coke, Floyd and Barker (1607) ruling from an acknowledged CORRUPT court, the Star Chamber.

[6] Incompetence is the most insidious and it is covered up by the gratuitous grant of malice, corruption and dishonesty!!!!

[8]Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority, still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.” Lord Acton in a letter he wrote to scholar and ecclesiastic Mandell Creighton, dated April 1887.
[9] TITLE 18—CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE, PART I—CRIMES, CHAPTER 13—CIVIL RIGHTS § 241.

[10] Briscoe v. LaHue, 460 U.S. 325 (1983) "Absolute immunity… for all persons -- governmental or otherwise -- who were integral parts of the judicial process" for the "deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws."
